Lifestyle & Nutrition Blog
An important part of our philosophy here at Woodlands Wellness & Cosmetic Center is to educate our guests on health and wellness and to provide them with as many resources as possible. We often come across, books, websites, seminars and podcasts that are related to topics that we discuss with our guests and make recommendations for these resources on a case by case basis. I thought that it may be useful to highlight a number of books that have relevance to our practice and that may be helpful to many of our guests seeking further information on the relationship between diet and wellness. I am excited to provide a short blog post on the newest book by best-selling author Danielle Walker called ‘Eat What You Love’.
Danielle Walker knows first-hand the connection between food and health. After years of failures with medical treatments for an auto-immune disease and failing health in her 20’s, she completely changed her diet as a last resort. Soon after adopting a grain-free, dairy-free eating plan, she noticed significant improvements in her health. She wanted to share what she had learned on her journey to better health with others who may be struggling and saw cookbooks as the way to pass along her wisdom. ‘Eat What You Love’ features many recipes that we all want to eat but have had to give up because of ingredients that negatively affect our health. This grain and dairy-free cookbook focuses on using healthy whole-food ingredients in place of traditional wheat/corn/rice and grains as well as non-dairy substitutions for traditional cow’s milk dairy foods. She has taken classics like Shepherd’s Pie, Chicken Nuggets, Fried Rice, Chocolate Donut’s and many more recipes and converted them into grain-free and dairy-free versions that are easy to prepare and full of flavor. Danielle is a master at prepping and planning meals and provides a 4 week meal plan with a link to printable grocery lists from her website: againstallgrain.com. ‘Eat What You Love’ offers recipes for slow-cooker, insta-pot and sheet-pan meals that will be easy to include in any busy household. And, don’t be afraid of ingredients that you may not recognize, they are all readily available in most grocery stores! If you are new to grain-free eating, you definitely want to check out her first book called ‘Against All Grain’. This book will ease you into a grain-free lifestyle and simplify recipes while using whole-food, healthy ingredients. Stayed tuned for future posts on Danielle’s other great cookbooks.
